KIDS IN COURTS, KIDS IN CRISIS~Justice for all children, to be safe from harm, protected with mercy & compassion.~ One of the most cruel forms of punishment is "denial of existence"~~~
Justice Anthony Kennedy said, “It would be misguided to equate the failing of a minor with those of an adult, for a greater possibility exists that a minor’s character deficiencies will be reformed."

Miranda Rights~Staying silent NOT enough/A MUST READ
Some kind of simple but unambiguous statement is the key, the Court said in Berghuis v. Thompkins. In other words. you can effectively give up your Miranda rights by simply failing to invoke them while the police continue to question you.
So, after an officer gives you a Miranda warning, it's best to make your desire to remain silent clear (and hopefully stop any police questioning) by saying something like "I wish to invoke my right to remain silent."
